Today I am going to give you a simple and easy-to-make food that can drastically improve the health of your pet’s gut. Chicken broth has been used for centuries to help heal the sick. It’s no coincidence that chicken noodle soup is the universal food for those affected with a cold or flu.
Why is chicken broth so healing? It is rich in vitamins, minerals and collagen. These components can help improve your pet’s digestion and overall immune function. Joints and skin are rich in collagen, a protein that heals and coats the lining of the intestines, and bones are a rich source of vitamins and minerals.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- stock pot
- ice cube trays or mason jars
- 2 chicken legs with skin and bone.
Check out the video here. Instructions are also listed below.
Put two chicken legs in stock pot with bone and skin. Fill with water. Bring to boil and let simmer for 90 minutes. This creates a gentle broth. Keep in the refrigerator for 7 days and in the freezer for up to 6 months. Freeze in ice cube trays for easy way to thaw one serving at a time.
Start slow here. If your dog or cat has a history of pancreatitis, please work with your veterinarian.
- Cats and small dogs: 1 tsp on food twice daily
- Medium sized dogs: ½ tbsp on food twice daily

Of course, always consult with your vet and please comment below or post on Facebook if you have any questions. I’d also love to hear about how you have improved your pet’s health with broth.
